ROA in .50 cal [or at least take a .490 RB] 50 grain of H777 in stainless and since you asked for two, make it a matched pair.

February 20, 2010, 04:41 AM
Ok, I know it's not practical but I'd still like to have one.
I would like to see a modern version of the LeMat like they used in the 1800's. I would have a 20ga single barrel mounted underneath and would have the pistol chambered for .357 magnum or possibly .44 magnum. It would be double action and have a 7" barrel. I'd make it with a large frame, big grips and market it towards camping, hunting or survival types.
I would also like to see an affordable Kel Tec RFB.

A Glock in both 7.62 x 25 and .460 Rowland.

Runner up would be an automatic pistol that could manage to cycle 17-357 reliably, just because a tiny varmint bullet going over 2000fps out of a pistol would be absurdly cool, if impractical.

February 20, 2010, 04:51 AM
1. Ruger (stainless) Bisley Blackhawk 5-shot .480 Ruger.
2. Ruger (stainless) Bisley Blackhawk 5-shot .454 Casull.

A Walther P99 AS in 9mm with a 106mm barrel.

I'll play.

First, I want them to remake the Walch Navy .36 as a modern weapon: A twelve-shot (in one cylinder) double-action revolver chambered in .357 and available in varied barrel lengths. Frankly, I don't think it can be done since I'm pretty sure the pressure of a .357 is a lot higher than the old .36 loads were (also, the Walch was a cap-and-ball gun), so unless they can make a really strong alloy for the cylinder it would have to be comically oversize. Not sure how to handle the firing pin either, since the nipples for the percussion caps were, I think, smaller than the rear of a modern cartridge would be, and also firing pin vs. hammer impact... it would take a lot of redesigning, maybe two firing pins, I don't know. I would like it to work with a single trigger, but if it takes two triggers I'll still take one.

Okay, it would probably end up combining all the worst features of autos and revolvers into one prohibitively expensive, hideous-looking, over-complicated abortion: Sacrificing reliability for more rounds (and still falling short of an auto), without the rapid reloading of an auto magazine or the balanced elegance of a revolver. Still, it'd be a pretty neat little abomination, a firearm version of the Spruce Goose. It would be the kind of thing that shows up in a book titled "A History of Weird Firearms" 100 years from now with an author's note saying "Like Icarus, they dreamed great dreams, but flew too close to the sun."

...and I've been racking my brain to conceive of an automatic pistol that I want made. All I can come up with is modularity, but the Sig P250 did that. Maybe they could do it cheaper and with more caliber and size options, but honestly I'm pretty impressed by it as is. If they could make it DA/SA instead of DAO I'd be even more impressed.

February 20, 2010, 06:51 AM
on a Glock (17L) in 7.62 x 25 Tok.

A modern LeMat is a nice idea too.

February 20, 2010, 09:08 AM
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned a single stack sub compact 9mm Glock! I'd go with that and an SP101 in .45 ACP.

February 20, 2010, 09:22 AM
good ideas the xdm10 would be nice
a glock 460 roland would bring some serious firepower
single stack glock nine would be cool
ill break my own rule and add a 3rd
seecamp to develop class leading 9mm

February 20, 2010, 03:04 PM
a new .45colt snub double action dont care from who smith colt even a taurus 450 brought back would be nice

i dont have a second one to add so just a double vote for the .45colt snubbie im tired of searching lol

February 20, 2010, 03:49 PM
Stainless steel 8 shot .38 special +P 3" barrel with integrated laser & red dot sights. Milled rail under the barrel.

Same as above but .44 special.


February 20, 2010, 04:09 PM
A compact Browning Hi-power (actually designed and made by Browning/FN)
A new HK P9S in 40.

February 20, 2010, 04:47 PM
Scaled up Kel-Tec PF-9 in .45 or 10mm

Stretched Tanfoglio Witness to resurrect the 10mm Magnum.

February 20, 2010, 05:19 PM
single stack glock 26

LCP with real sights

February 20, 2010, 05:28 PM
Larry's Dad's guns! (The .45 and 9mm para that is!) [Sorry...only a true Seecamp fan would understand this one. ;-) ]

February 20, 2010, 07:36 PM
Ruger 45acp and 10mm revolvers

February 20, 2010, 07:57 PM
single stack subcompact glock; slim down the slide a bit as well 9mm

February 20, 2010, 09:21 PM
Ruger (stainless) Bisley Blackhawk 5-shot .454 Casull.
...with a conversion cylinder for .45ACP.

Ruger GP100 in 10MM, stainless, with choice of 3", 4.5", and 6" bbl.

The SP101 in 9mm, .45ACP, and 10MM all sounds cool.

If Ruger made the five above revolvers I would borrow the money from the bank and order all five Monday.


February 20, 2010, 09:25 PM
Ruger MKIII or Browning Buckmark in .17 mach 2
Walther PPK in .22 mag That would be a great CCW peice.

February 20, 2010, 10:54 PM
A Glock in 7.62x25mm

A full-sized S&W revolver in .40S&W which would not require full-moon (or half moon) clips.

February 20, 2010, 10:56 PM
I'm definately on board with the single stack baby Glock idea only in .40 cal. Other than that just ressurect the Colt Mustang and I'll be pretty happy.

February 20, 2010, 11:22 PM
HK USP in 10mm, with a non-neutered UMP carbine also in 10mm, obviously able to take the USP mags, and with higher capacity magazines.

I probably couldn't afford it, but while we're dreaming right?

February 21, 2010, 11:23 AM
M&P in 10mm
M&P in 7.62X25

February 21, 2010, 12:05 PM
Just found out the other day that Ruger has never produced a revolver with an 8" barrel. I say they need to get on it. A GP100 or .357 Blackhawk with an 8" would be so awesome.

February 21, 2010, 12:14 PM
I'll echo the single stack Glock idea and add two more of my own:

A full-frame Glock with a 1911 grip angle and thumb safety. No finger grooves. Useful interchangeable backstraps.

A stainless steel 1911 CCO in 9mm.

February 21, 2010, 12:20 PM
Ruger .45acp snub.

A good factory .22 in auto other than the Ruger or Browning. Forgot about CZ but there still needs to be another.

February 21, 2010, 12:25 PM
1) Glock in 5.7
2) Single stack Glock 27

February 21, 2010, 12:38 PM
1) Ruger or S&W revolver in a new caliber such as a .357mag necked to .22 or 6mm or .44mag necked to 6mm or .25

2) A new version of the old Coonan 357mag 1911

February 21, 2010, 12:48 PM
single stack glock in 9mm with an m&p trigger and no finger grooves or light rail

a mid size ruger 357, like a 6 shot sp frame with gp grips and a 4 inch bbl

February 21, 2010, 08:50 PM
Something the size of the old S&W New Departure Safety Hammerless in .32 H&R Magnum. (2 1/2-3" barrel please) in a propper blue or nickle finish w/ no lock.

A 2 1/2"-3" New Service in .45 Colt w/ cylinder relieved to also accomodate mooncliped 45 ACP and a bobbed hammer.

A good Colt Woodsman.

1st Series

February 21, 2010, 09:48 PM
I want something like a browning hi-power but with a larger capacity.

Combine a browning hi-power, sig p226, and cz-75 and I will be one happy man :D

Double/single action, large slide, nice balance and feel-fits in the hand well, low bore axis, safety and decocker positioning of the sig, .40 cal high capacity, novak style combat night sights, decent pair of grips... oooh, it's like ectasy

especially when they make a 9mm barrel and mags so you can swap out calibers ;)

February 21, 2010, 09:49 PM
Ruger GP100 in .45 ACP

Classic style .38 Special Colt Agent w/ exposed ejector rod


February 22, 2010, 12:28 AM
1. Ruger .22 with 20 round (or higher) mags.

2. Glock Carbine - I know, but it's based on a pistol.

February 22, 2010, 07:37 AM
I like the idea of a modern 7.62x25 with modern HP ammo.....I think I'd definitely prefer an all steel gun for this one! :uhoh:

How about a CZ 75 Tok.

February 22, 2010, 02:07 PM
How 'bout a 9mm lever gun? I wonder what the magazine tube capacity would be, or how it could even feed?

Or a 38/357 Ruger Carbine. May require recoil spring changes...

Sorry I just realized I was in a handgun thread...at least they're handgun rounds :)

February 22, 2010, 05:10 PM
A polymer framed 1911 chambered in .25ACP with a big neon logo on the side and punisher logo grips.

A Glock with a thumb safety, internal lock, mag disconnect, grip safety, 1/2" tall loaded chamber indicator and a proprietary 6 round magazine that only comes in .45GAP. I would also like a big warning on it too. We'll call it "Extra Safe Action Pistol".


February 22, 2010, 09:47 PM
Glock .45 & 10mm in the Practical/Tactical long slide like the Glock 34/35.

Slimline single stack Glock 9mm.

XD(m) 45. I personally cannot believe they brought out these new short-slide 3.8 pistols before releasing a .45 ACP version...weak weak weak.

Sig P220/226/229, but with the DAO trigger from the new P250 instead of the DAK trigger.

Walther PPK in 9x19mm instead of .380ACP. Beautiful gun, for if Ruger can jam the .380 in the LCP then Walther should be able to put 9mm in the PPK.

The return of the S&W Model 19.

February 23, 2010, 04:39 AM
2) A new version of the old Coonan 357mag 1911

That was displayed at SHOT, although I forget the details.

February 23, 2010, 08:54 AM
I've always loved the looks and feel of the Walther PPK but don't want to add a .32 or .380 to my collection. I'd like to see a 9mm version made as close as possible to the looks and size of the original - I'd expect at least a slight increase in size and weight.

February 23, 2010, 01:40 PM
an 8-9 shot .327mag revolver.

a pocket sized .22mag autoloader (would have to be a good bit smaller than a LCP).

February 23, 2010, 03:25 PM
- Armalite AR-24 in 7.62x25mm
- NAA Mini Revolver scaled up to shoot .32 acp

February 23, 2010, 03:36 PM
A 12 gauge revolver

February 23, 2010, 04:02 PM
glock in .380 cal

February 23, 2010, 04:11 PM
Alright, I'll play...

a portable mini-gun that shoots 9mm or 45 acp. JUST like the minigun, only portable and with some sort of a stock.

thats all I can really think of.

February 23, 2010, 04:19 PM
A CZ PCR with a thumb safety instead of a decocker.

February 23, 2010, 04:22 PM
I'm going to break the rules and list more than 2:

1. Beretta all-metal single-stack 9mm DA/SA sub-compact that looks, feels, and works like the 85FS Cheetah

2. S&W Airweight 5-shot .32 H&R DAO revolver with 2" barrel - smaller in every dimension than a standard J-frame

3. Ruger Super Blackhawk stainless, unfluted cylinder, 5.5" barrel with flush ejector rod housing, "Dragoon" style grip frame and squared-off trigger guard

4. Springfield XDM .45

5. Springfield EMP with flush-fitting mags, left-side only safety, slight bobtailed or rounded mainspring housing, ultra-slim grip panels, and a price tag below $1,000

February 23, 2010, 04:30 PM
10mm XD

February 23, 2010, 04:46 PM
CZ 75 SP-01 without rail..

February 23, 2010, 05:14 PM
Glock semi auto single stack .44 magnum

February 23, 2010, 05:15 PM
an 8-9 shot .327mag revolver.

Ruger makes the Blackhawk in an 8 shot .327mag and the GP100 in a 7 shot .327mag. They're both available now and I thought the price was decent on the Blackhawk. I'm thinking about ordering a pair. It's a pretty easy conversion to rebate the cylinder for moon clips, then I would have a revolver that could shoot .327, .32H&R, .32long, .32 S&W, and .32ACP with the moon clips. With a conversion cylinder I could also shoot .32-20. Since Ruger made the very pistol I am talking about in .32H&R/.32-20 convertable in the not too distant past, I am hopeful that we will see it again in .327/.32-20. :D


February 23, 2010, 05:22 PM
glock21's with 3&2-burst

February 23, 2010, 08:25 PM
I can only think of one thing I'd like to see made: a modernized c96 Mauser.

Update the grip to something like a K-frame Smith or a Ruger Six Series and make the magazine detachable.

I love the idea of an auto that handles like a revolver. I don't understand why that didn't catch on. A magazine in front of the trigger guard seems a lot more natural to me than trying to cram all those rounds into the grip (creating uncomfortable, swollen grips on many guns--yeah, I'm a revolver guy).

A Ruger LCR 6-shot in .327 Magnum.
A mid-size predominantly alloy frame 3" 5-shot .41 Mag. revolver (for up to Grizzly in Alaska).
A .40 S&W whose frame and mags are actually designed for that cartridge SPECIFICALLY (not a 9mm or .45 first) to minimize size and maximize capacity IN that gun. SAME for .38 Super.


February 23, 2010, 08:42 PM
A Ruger LCR 6-shot in .327 Magnum

I'm betting this is on the way.


February 23, 2010, 09:05 PM
A Browning BDA design in 9mm.
Different options for firing the 5.7x28.

February 23, 2010, 09:09 PM
+ 1 for the 12 gauge revolver!!

February 23, 2010, 10:38 PM
1. Stainless Ruger Blackhawk, 4 & 5/8", .357/9mm Convertible

2. S&W Stainless Model 58 .41 Mag (No Lock, No MIM, Single Piece Barrel)

3. .45 ACP Luger PO-8 Stainless (that works reliably)

4. Stainless Upper / Alloy Reciever S&W Model 39-2 9mm (with wood grips)

5. 9mm Makarov Walther PPK/S with Tennifer-like finish

6. Modernized Webley MKVI topbreak .44 Special, 4", MKI birdshead grips

7. Colt Agent/Cobra alloy 6-shot revolver in 9mm, rust resistant subdued finish

8. S&W M66 No Dash .357 K-frame; 2.5 inch (exactly as originally made)

Hell...pick two.

February 24, 2010, 10:07 AM
Stainless Ruger Blackhawk, 4 & 5/8", .357/9mm Convertible

It's moronic that Ruger doesn't already produce that gun.


February 24, 2010, 10:29 AM
Top break revolver in .327 or .357

Bring back the Dan Wesson revolvers!

February 24, 2010, 10:33 AM
S&W .45 Hand Ejector (M1917) in 4" and 6" barrel lengths with the front sight in the PROPER position. NO LOCK.

February 24, 2010, 10:34 AM
Bring back the Dan Wesson revolvers!

There are recurring rumors of new revolvers. Never any confirmation.

February 24, 2010, 10:40 AM
Walther PPK in 9x19mm instead of .380ACP. Beautiful gun, for if Ruger can jam the .380 in the LCP then Walther should be able to put 9mm in the PPK.
It would either have to have a slide that weighs more than an entire .380acp PPK/S, a recoil spring that wouldn't compress under Rosie O'Donnell's bulk, or both.

It's just not going to happen, because it CAN'T.

February 24, 2010, 11:05 AM
Smith and Wesson 44 mag single stack long slide. Stainless and scary :eek:

February 24, 2010, 12:53 PM
A 1911 in 5.7x28

February 24, 2010, 12:55 PM
Alright, I'll play...

a portable mini-gun that shoots 9mm or 45 acp. JUST like the minigun, only portable and with some sort of a stock.

thats all I can really think of.
that would be insanely awesome.

Springfield XD .45 Sub Compact.

Ruger 1911 with a da/sa trigger.

February 24, 2010, 02:45 PM
A derringer in .50 BMG

February 24, 2010, 03:38 PM
GP100 in .45ACP would be really cool

GP100 7 shot .357, with a half underlug.

February 24, 2010, 08:59 PM
A Kel-Tec P-11 made by and using the firing mechanism of Glock.

Marlin Guide Gun pistol in .460 S&W.

Just One Shot
February 25, 2010, 03:52 PM
Ruger MK II (the III Uggghhh) with 20+ round mag's

I don't get this. I have a MK III and it's every bit as good as the MK II I use to own.

February 26, 2010, 09:10 AM
1) I'd Love to have an I frame S&W in 327 magnum! 3 1/4". That would be a pocket gun!
2) How bout bringing back the S&W Models 13 & 65 3" bull barrel 357's the best guns they ever made!

With the guns S&W is putting out lately, other than the Classics, I think they're trying to compete with Hi Point for ugliest guns!!

February 27, 2010, 06:10 PM
1. A 1911 style pistol in .357 mag / .38spl that works properly would be fun.

2. This isn't a pistol, but it's still great idea. A lever action carbine in .500 S&W would be cool.
